Hi everyone! Ibukunoluwa Salau here with an important company update. I am excited to share that Direx has been selected as one of the Tech Nation UK Rising Stars 5.0 city winners for the Midlands by Tech Nation. We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the UK’s most innovative and exciting early-stage tech companies.
Direx is an all-in-one digital solution that enables hospitality and hospitality businesses in Africa to sell, manage, automate, and grow their businesses online and on their terms. Our mission is to digitize Africa’s $194 billion hospitality industry, the second fastest growing in the world, which is still heavily reliant on offline and manual processes.
